Configure FlashScan V2 to use an SD Card
There are 2 different methods to access Device Settings. To access these;
- Connect your FlashScan V2 to your PC.

- Select the [F6: Devices] option in the left-hand pane; or
- Select the [F5: BBX] -> [F6: Quick Setup] menu and select the Edit FlashScan V2 Settings option.
